The Historical Dictionary of Switzerland states that Vorpe only originates from Sonceboz-Sombeval, which is in the Jura region of Canton Bern. I suggest you write (try English, with an apology for not using French - unless you are fluent!) to the Civil Registry "Zivilstandsamt" at firstname.lastname@example.org stating what you know of your ancestor and ask for a copy of the "Familienschein" if one exists. Also ask for a quote first, as they will charge for this. This document has the parents & all children recorded at this place. Full explanations of the research of swiss ancestors is here: http://www.eye.ch/swissgen/intro-e.htm.
